sports? and the reason i ask you that is because i interviewed the detroit tigers and i asked them, would you feel comfortable with a gay player coming out on the detroit tigers and they said, what's the big deal? is it different in the world of baseball than it is in the world of football? >> i don't think so, actually. i think we do athletes a disservice by assuming that they are all neandrethals. i've found that most don't care what the sexual orientation is. it allows everyone a voice in the conversation. so i don't believe that there is one sport that is more or less homophobic. i just think that athletes are not given the opportunity to prove how accepting that they are. >> i ask you these questions because in the world of sports, especially in football, you see many religious players, social conservatives. >> yeah. you know, i think that religion is important and the one thing that we do is try to meet the players or anyone where they are at. if there's a player that has a religious concern about playing with an lgbt player, we want to have that conversation, do it in an open and h
to miami to new york city to chicago, illinois to detroit, michigan. and as senseless as this homicide is, those other homicides are just as senseless, and those people were somebody's kid, also. so my heart breaks for this family and what they are experiencing. having prosecuted murder cases, i can tell you that their lives are altered forever. it will never be the same, and the same goes for the defendants, for the men who the young men who have been accused of this crime and i understand are going to face a very serious charge. >> i mean, i've read before i came on air tonight that apparently there have been ten kids age 7 or younger who have been shot in chicago since the end of june. not all killed but all shot, and some of it just so random, just walking upstairs to their home. so that's chicago. we know they have problems there. we have this going on in oklahoma. we have it in every major city. where does it end? in australia they had a massacre in '96 and it changed everything, and the people that drove the change were c conservatives and republicans. what is wrong with america th
in america, but the safest car in the world, and of course, detroit hates that. the other american automobile manufacturers don't actually hate tesla cars, but they do hate the way that they are sold. tesla doesn't use a network of dealerships the way ford, gm and all the other manufacturers too. tesla sells directly to consumers. no dealership middlemen there, none of that stuff. of course, the industry feels threatened by that. and the new model of sales and so car dealers have been lobbying state legislatures around the country to block tesla wherever they can. tesla is a silicon valley start-up. and the tesla cars are made in california. and that liberal regulation, heavy state of california actually allows tesla to do business any way it wants to. so tesla has show rooms in california where they can sell cars directly to consumers. the manufacturers, selling directly through their own show rooms. and you can also order a tesla on line in california. but in rick perry's texas, automobile sales are much, much more regulated by the government. because the automobile dealerships demand it. s
washington, d.c., detroit and chicago. have the highest gun murder rates in the entire country. we also know the converse that in areas of the country where gun control is relatively lax, crime rates go down. an armed society is a safer society. that's a different question than the police in stop and frisk. >> that's not necessarily true. in texas, they have you know, you can carry and it's fairly easy to acquire a gun legally. but houston is -- you know, it's a dangerous place because you have got a lot of that what we were talking about. the neighborhoods that are out-of-control. that's where all the crime begins. do you believe stop and frisk, colmes, is racial profiling? >> the way they do it in new york is i'm not against stop and frisk and neither is the court. the court way it's being implemented in new york in newark where they're every month putting on line who is being stopped. racial -- what race they are and complete transparency that's the way to do it. and civil libertarians. >> bill: have an officer who stops somebody do what? >> write down how are stopping. write down the rac
of detroit of their pensions. they worked hard for these pensions. [applause] and let me tell you something, if they, if we stand by while they take the detroiters pensions, they'll be taking our pensions. so don't think it won't happen to us. if they can set a precedent, they'll do it to us again. you know, let me just tell you this: inequality is a scourge on our society. and, yes, we're talking about low-wage workers making $7.25 an hour, we've got to do something about it. but there's the other side of that, the other side of that is that some people are doing pretty good. so between 1979 and 2007, 20, you know, a period of a it little bit less than 20 years, real income rose by 240% for those at the top 1. it's a shameful thing. it is a moral issue. and we have got to fight back at this. let me tell you this, our economy is capable be of producing -- capable of producing enough good paying jobs for everyone.
